Hasselbeck responds to O'Donnell's mutual 'crush' claims

According to the tell-all, Goldberg apparently sent O'Donnell an "angry letter" in response, but O'Donnell said she responded "diplomatically".

'That was the worst day of my life, ' he recalled.

Almost ten years after launching the ABC morning program in 1997, the renowned journalist invited Rosie to join the panel in 2006 after Star Jones got fired.

Clearly, there's been some dysfunction behind the scenes of the popular show through the years, according to new interviews with former co-hosts for Setoodeh's book.

The article came out in September 2007 with a psychiatrist calling O'Donnell "full of rage" and suggesting she "dishes out anger mostly to women because of deep-seated abandonment issues over her mother's death".

She went on to argue that, under different circumstances, the two would've bonded through her All My Children lineage: 'She's the girl from Pine Valley.

Although O'Donnell's statement about Goldberg were not so flattering, she did make a point to say she still respects her former co-host. "Nobody is going to watch the show after you leave", Matenopoulos told Walters at the time.

Walters wasn't a fan of this, and had ABC leak her mention in Celebrity Detox to the New York Post, where she called the memoir a "sad book, but I prefer to focus on the happier times we had and the happier times we hope to have in the future".

Nicholas Cage Applies For Marriage License in Las Vegas

As you may remember, back in 2006, during a Live With Regis and Kelly co-host stint, the American Idol star put his hand over Ripa's mouth prompting her to say: 'I don't know where that's been, honey'.

O'Donnell explained to Setoodeh how Goldberg compares to others working in television, saying: "Whoopi Goldberg was as mean as anyone has ever been on television to me, personally-while I was sitting there". Because I'm like, 'How am I going to handle this?' In my old self, this would be another split-screen moment.

"She's a minority, feminist, smart, funny, groundbreaking legend who is black in America", Rosie added. "But that was a painful experience, personally and professionally".

On Fox & Friends, Hasselbeck called the claims "disturbing" and "wrong". "Whether you're a man or whether you're a woman, and you're objectifying women in the workplace, it's wrong".

O'Donnell said that she was deeply hurt by Hasselbeck, and their fight on TV was about more than just politics.

"I absolutely forgive her", Hasselbeck said.

O'Donnell quipped that "there were underlying lesbian undertones on both parts", alluding to Hasselbeck's past as a softball player.
